Robins prefer live food to seeds and nuts, alhough theywill take some.

They love mealworms, so if you want to see robins on your bird tables, something insecty will do the trick!

I can really agree with your sentiments, Duggat.

My neighbour has disputes with me--even before I get to move in!

I know this is old, but I laughed my socks off at it. :lol: The New Age crowd are notorious for having little or no sense of humour when their 'pet' theories are concerned. I remember, as I was once (notionally) one of them, although I didn't have the Humourectomy! Strangely, there is evidence of th...

Agreed. I wasn't proposing universal muzzling as a standalone remedy, but as an add-on to other control measures :)

Also, if they are escaping due to desperation for food, there is a horse charity which used to be called the International League for the Protection of Horses (ILPH). and I believe it is now called World Horse Welfare (WHW). If the horses are thin or starving they can and will take action. I wouldn'...

Rotties can be softies, as can GSDs, but both are large dogs, and if poorly trained and controlled can be a menace, especially when young. The owner of the dog has the responsibility of keeping it controlled, and on his own property. If you put up a fence to keep the dog out let the neighbour know i...

I feel that all dogs should be microchipped, also that whilst out in public they should all be muzzled, except for police dogs in the performance of their duty.

Perhaps Treeman can assist in a thing puzzling me about Sycamores. I have been led to believe that they are considered almost a 'weed', especially with their ability to seed indiscriminately. If this is so, why should anyone want to put a TPO on one?

Just curious.

I'm no expert on Oz law either, but as Eucalypts exude a very volatile oil, could you not put forward a case for it being a fire hazard?

Even in Britain we see the bush fires you get raging through the Eucalypt bush each year.
